About me

I have masses of experience in producing illustration work for top ad agencies, design groups and publishers.

An airbrush artist in a previous life, most of my work is now drawn in Photoshop.

I can match most styles but specialise in realistic illustration, transport subjects a particular favourite of mine.

I'm always on the lookout for interesting projects to work on so please get in touch.
